Groomers tracked Boomer Blue today. Most of the rest of the trails skied in. Part of Loop 2 (by the shelter) hasn't been groomed in ages. Poor ski conditions.

Very skiable though not groomed since last Friday's snowfall. Tracks nicely skied in with a few leaves to catch wax. Temps above zero! Met a lady with dog skijoring Boomer Blue, the big wide section between the double tracks.

All three loops are now groomed. The tracks are a bit hard but otherwise are in perfect condition. Excellent skiing! Kudos to the forest managers and groomers - new maps at all intersections and improvements to the loop connectors are improvements on a great classic skiing trail.

Loop 2 is in pretty good shape. Some walker tracks, but they mostly stayed to the sides. Saw a treed porcupine on the edge of a cedar swamp.

Boomer Blue and most of Loop 1 and 2 are groomed and tracked (not the trail past the shelter). Loop 3 is packed. All the ski trails had either walkers, snowshoers, or dogs.

Snowshoed loop 2 off of Boomer Blue. Did significant clearing. Met DNR crew of 2 on snowmobiles with chain saws. They'll make faster work of it than we did! Looking forward to skiing my fav trail soon!

Boomer Blue parking lot is plowed and the main ski trail is cleared and packed but not yet tracked. Crews have been working to clear the singletrack undulating woods trail and will continue next week hoping to complete by Jan 1st.
